I took this snap of a Turnstone at Scarborough on Sunday. They're called Turnstones because they turn stones over to find food. A lot of birds are named after what they do, Oystercatcher springs to mind, but I'm not sure where the Blue Tit fits in.

Because I'm such a fun person (ha) I had to look up "tit" and you all will be happy to know it is old German for small. Don't you feel better now? I knew you would. Glad I could help.
